Q1 when i clean, i use a 5-10% bleach solution and scrub really well, rinse with pure water, windex the glass/plastic, let air dry for 30ish min, then add bedding, bowl, snake.

Q2 no clue

Q3 you should do everything in your power to make the cage escape proof. If it's even remotely possible to get out, the snake WILL do it. no cracks, nothing loose, no gaps, etc... for most kings heating will be very easy... small heat pad, flexwatt, or heat lamp. give them a cage that is mostly in the lower 70s but with access to an area around 88.

LQ that is a very big cage... almost too big. but a large eastern/chain king or a big florida king would look very impressive stretched out in something like that. Its rare, but sometimes snakes will feel insecure and not feed if they are in a large open cage so a small snake might not do well. regardless of what you put in there, provide a snug hide box or two.
